…Onaatah cried out.
Onaatah of the Earth is a novel by a novelist and screenwriter Paulami DuttaGupta. The novel is based on a National Award winning Khasi film by the same name. Onaatah was awarded the Best Khasi Film at the 63rd National Film Awards.
Onaatah is not merely a tale about a rape victim. It is in fact a journey of a sexually assaulted woman from darkness to hope; of how she goes through the complex corridors and the hypocrite systems of a modern day society and how she regains her lost strength during an unforeseen journey realizing the true meaning of life, relationships and most importantly that of love.
The author has aptly written down the characters and that is the true essence of this novel. May it be the multitasking and hilarious Duh or the young lovers Charming and Dariti or the wise Dondor, the author has done justice with each and every one of them. Even I found the use of Khasi terms and names quite interesting.
The character of Onaatah (Daughter of the Earth) has been presented in a poetic form. Like mother earth, a woman is also the creator of life. The flora and fauna never questions the character of their mother and still the society hasn’t learnt this fact and blindly holds women responsible for everything. Verily speaking, the daughters of the earth are in grave danger and it is high time that the society realizes its mistakes and allows them to breathe freely in the air of liberty and tranquility.
The story revolves around the Onaatah (daughter of the earth), a rape survivor and her struggles to overcome the ordeal to create a life of her own! She is fearless and strong! Totally loved the potraization of the character.
My most loved characted in the story is Duh! He is cute, funny but a very strong character.
Onaatah of the Earth is just not a story of a fictional girl , its story of every girl in the world who faces the hardships of after Rape.
Though they are Rape survivor, society never backs down to ultimately blame her.
Kudos to you paulami for this breakthrough concept and writing. You always make me fall in love with your writing!
The story is quite insightful and it really got me thinking and in the end my own conclusion is that there still a lot of soul searching to be done by men and society in general. Some of the interactions within this book's character are sublime and extremely thought provoking. I hope this may just maybe acts a catalyst for change and the way society thinks. I would definitely recommend every guy especially to read this book and do his own soul searching!! We have a long way to go!!
